Petitioning Pennsylvania State House and 13 others

To remove the appointed position provided to Martin Schmotzer and accompanied appointed board members.

The Baldwin Whitehall School District is making it a standard practice of appointing board members and this week appointed a member of the board to the 3rd highest paying job in the district.

Martin was appointed to a job that was apparently created just for him, no job posting was made for the public and no resumes where accepted. Martin's own resume or even a job application was not accepted as part of this appointment.

An intern of Martin's was appointed after Martin resigned from the board and then voted for Martin to take this new high paid position.

The board needs to be transparent and know that they represent the members of the Baldwin Whitehall communities.

We the people, want this new position of "Supervisor of projects for the board of school directors" to be elminated and Martin's seat on the board to remain vacated.

We the people, want the two previously vacated board seats to remain vacated and to be filled through the election process.

NOTE: This petition is for residents of the Baldwin Whitehall School District.
